Cognitive Science Community Speaker Event

Savithry Namboodiripad

Assistant Professor Savithry Namboodiripad, U-M Department of Linguistics, will give a talk on language change.

ABSTRACT
How do languages change in multilingual contexts? In this talk, I'll run through a few different types of language change, and show how taking an interdisciplinary approach can help us understand how factors such as language ideology and language policy might influence how words are pronounced/understood, as well as how words are ordered. I will show some examples across contexts, from American English and Malayalam, and argue that differences in how speakers categorize linguistic material as belonging to one language or another is an important factor in how languages change due to language contact.
